Publisher's Summary

Milwaukee, 1995. In a city still reeling from the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer, a woman’s body is found with the lungs removed. Local cops think a Dahmer copycat is on the loose. But Patrick Bowers, working as a homicide detective for the Milwaukee Police Department, sees from the timing and location of the crime that this is not a copycat at all. It's a killer with an entirely different agenda....

Critic Reviews

" Opening Moves is a mesmerizing read. From the first chapter, it sets its hook deep and drags you through a darkly gripping story with relentless power. My conclusion: I need to read more of Steven James." (Michael Connelly)

Would you listen to Opening Moves again? Why?

Extremely violent and discriptive.

What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

Richard has a good reading voice and reads the horrific details with just the right amout of menace.

Any additional comments?

I did not "enjoy" this book. It is not a story I would recommend.

I'm not a fan of going back in time, particularly devoting a whole novel to it, but this time it was worth the read. Throughout the first five Bower books, the hero keeps referring to events that occurred long ago, and this novel answers a lot of questions about what happened back then. If fact if a reader new to Steven James, decides to start with this novel, and then listen to the others in order, that would probably be the best way to appreciate this series.

I'll be happy to get back to the current time frame if Steven James plans to continue the Bowers novels with story lines involving the current characters from Book 5.

All of Steven James novels are well crafted and extremely interesting.
